    Thanks for your feedback. I have already been interested in hospice care and I thought it would be in an inpatient setting. The idea of home hospice care is all new to me.

    Here's my vent- today I was sent to a motel next to a topless bar (parking lot for thw bar is shared with motel) saturated with drugs and prostitutes and when I complained they made it seem like that type of environment is normal and I was told all the other nurses are going and do not have an issues. Feeling blah today. Then I was asked to open a noncompliant patient that is on drugs and refuses to follow any medical advice.

    enjoyed your post !! But Never expect thanks for a job well done, they just give more work for you to do !

    I'm thinking about transitioning into home health nursing. I'm an RN, however I'm concerned because I have severe allergies and asthma and I'm worried that going into home with so many potential triggers will further exacerbate my illness. Any thoughts?
